Today

A Poem

rain threatens to freeze
it is the kind of day
wanderers won’t land
the unsettled tethered
to the wind
or the train

I could have molded my life
with the red clay 
of her grave
the dry crumbling 
stone and dust
heavy on a fairy tale box

I could have given time
I didn’t feel apt to give
to know her light 
truer than the shine
of her children’s shine
but we busy our lives

what is important now
the decades do what they
will before we are even 
awake to our memories
even as rain drenches
words of winter


Samantha Lazar 2019

That’s my grief today. May all who suffer know peace.
